Create Your Own Outlander Merchandise!

We were all excited when Zazzle started their own Outlander Fan Merch Store with their official merchandise but it was also upsetting that all their previous fan made Outlander merchandise had been removed for copyright reasons!

However, all is not lost because Zazzle have opened up the floodgates to allow fans to resubmit their Outlander designs and create new ones as well! There are some terms and conditions as to what can be added onto designs and we can't design on every single product but I'm really looking forward to what we (as fans) can come up with! 

Let's get the creative juices flowing ...

Official Outlander Store At Zazzle!

The latest brands store on Zazzle is an official Outlander store selling some absolutely fantastic Outlander Merchandise! I'm so excited I feel as if I'm hyperventilating!

Here are just some of the amazing Outlander goodies ...

Waiting for Roger MacKenzie?

When it was first announced that Outlander was going to finally become a TV series we were all waiting in anticipation for the announcement of who would play Jamie and the vast majority of us were highly delighted when the little known Sam Heughan was given the role.  There were the expected moans and groans from some people but it appears that when picking male actors they really know what they are doing!

However, filming for the second series is well under way and there is still no real mention of the casting of my second favourite male, Roger Wakefield MacKenzie!  I'll be honest and say that I'm getting worried! Have they found someone and are keeping him a secret or are they struggling to find someone who is suitable? 

Looking at some old posts in this blog I found this post called Roger MacKenzie in the Flesh where I picked a few actors who I thought would be good for the role.  Well I haven't changed my mind but logistically some of them are tied up for a while with other projects. Aiden Turner would be a wonderful choice but he's playing dashing Ross Poldark for the next couple of years and Christian Bale is far too important now to do a lowly TV show!

Looking forward to Ross Poldark!

Something to feast your eyes on until you wait for the next episode of Outlander on April 4th! 

The Outlander books are without a doubt my favourite but the Poldark books are a close second and coming soon to UK TV is the new Poldark TV series!  They are an adaptation from the books by Winston Graham and are about a minor landowner returning to Cornwall from the Revolutionary War in America! The books were made into a TV series in the 70's and it was a resounding success but the new TV series looks far more in depth and hopefully will do justice to the original story.  The main character in the story is Ross Poldark who was originally played by Robin Ellis but will now be played by Aiden Turner who I'm sure you'll agree is very easy on the eye! 

Here is the trailer ...

Now you may be wondering what this has to do with Outlander

At the end of the trailer you see Ross Poldark/Aidan Turner standing at the harbour at Charleston in Cornwall.  The boat you see in the harbour is called the Phoenix and it is the same one which was used for the boat which takes Jamie and Claire to France! The reason I know this is because I was there last summer not long after they finished filming Poldark and they were in the process refitting the ship for a "new TV show" ... which I now know to be Outlander!  Normally the ship is available for the public to go on and have a look around (or in my case play pirates on!) but it was closed when I was there as they didn't want the public to make a mess of the new shiny paint job!
